staring at the sea

Working with images of water, the sea, and the horizon I bumped into this super 8 footage of elder people looking to the sea form their terraces. At the same time, I was following the news on the oils split in the Gulf of Mexico and it then made sense to me to work dialectically with both. Playing with the idea of Kuleshov’s monatge effect.

Staring at the sea is an interactive video installation that uses computer vision to detect the presence of the viewer to display a different image than the one that could be expected to follow the nostalgic found-footage film that is being shown.
